This coming weekend the mothers are to be treated in a very special way. Maybe a very pretty card expressing love, or some flowers as a token of our love, or maybe even some chocolates. We celebrate and remember all the special times she spent with us when growing up.

However maybe Mom is just a sweet memory, because her death is still mourned. For some it will be a time of grieving. Maybe there is a neighbor or friend who does not have any children, or whose children live far away. Make sure to let them know of your love and care for them. Most are only a phone call away.

Jesus reminds us to honor our parents. Yes Dad, your turn comes next month. We might have adverse feelings about our relationship with our parents. However without them we would not be here.

Jesus tells us in Mathew 19:19 “Honor your father and mother, and love your neighbor as yourself.” Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:23 “Honor your father and mother… that it may go well with you.”

Have a wonderful Mother’s Day.
